love has arrived. And I thank God I'm alive. You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off of you."
Remember “Ten Things I hate About You”?
While we can't all get our sweethearts to sing this song to us while running
away from security guards during our soccer practice like late Heath Ledger
did, dancing along to this song is a close second.

stronger than anyone I know / She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll

Most romantic lyric: “You make me smile
with my heart”
Ella Fitzgerald was a jazz legend with many
